Media players in 4MLinux.

Note:
This post describes the features, which are available in 4MLinux 14.0 and later.

1) There are five general-purpose media players available out of the box: MPlayer with GNOME MPlayer (a front-end for MPlayer), mpv with Baka MPlayer (a front-end for mpv), and SMPlayer (which can act as a front-end for both MPlayer and mpv).

Have fun :-)
